Twin Falls Fugitive David Knutsen arrested by Ely Nevada police.


By Paul Johnson

A fugitive wanted in Twin Falls has been detained in Nevada. David Knutsen was found guilty last may on charges of sexually attacking a vulnerable adult, while both were patients at the Canyonview Psychiatric and addictions service facility in Twin Falls. Knutsen failed to appear for his sentencing hearing on July 19th and a $500,000 bench warrant for his arrest was issued by a 5th District Judge. Twin Falls police and Sheriff’s officials say Knutsen was stopped on unrelated charges in the Ely, Nevada area this week and he’s now being detained in the White Pine County Jail. It’s uncertain if Knutsen faces additional charges in Ely or when he may be extradited to Twin Falls.
